MacMeans reintroduces William, Duke of Bedford, from The Education of Mrs. Brimley as he hunts for an heiress and love. She knows how to make the pages sizzle and play on readers' fantasies while incorporating intrigue and a solid story into her delectable novels.

Newport heiress Francesca Winthrop wants to marry for love, but her social-climbing mother arranges her betrothal to a near-penniless English duke. In desperate need of
a wealthy wife, even if she is an American, William Chambers still
has no desire to marry, but a chance encounter with Fran at a masquerade
ball makes him think differently about
marriage. But misunderstandings
cause Fran to shy away from
William, until she begins reading
a courtesan's diary.

Fran experiments with the "advice" in the diary and achieves the desired effect. But there's more to the diary than either of them realizes, as Fran's past reaches out to destroy their marriage. (BERKLEY SENSATION, Apr., 380 pp., $7.99)
